We recently had two hiring challenges for the launch of our UK business. With the support of Airswift, we instantly had a committed and supportive search consultant assigned to us who helped us achieve our needs in a determined time frame. The process was very quick – We had a shortlist of suitable candidates within two weeks, and the Airswift search consultant arranged all calls and meetings in our offices. Airswift always had a very supportive, efficient and informative day-to-day follow up procedure. We will undoubtedly have more hiring in the near future and Airswift is our only option to approach.
